New jukebox musical La Bamba! is at Curve in Leicester until Saturday 5 August before heading to London’s Peacock Theatre, Sadler’s Wells West End theatre, for a limited season from Tuesday 22 August – Saturday 2 September 2023. It will continue its UK tour until December 2023.
The explosive new musical will star Strictly Come Dancing champion Pasha Kovalev, The Wanted‘s Siva Kaneswaran and rising star Inês Fernandez. It features an electric soundtrack of Latin pop anthem artists such as Ricky Martin, Shakira, Marc Anthony, Becky G, Camila Cabello, J-Lo and many more.
La Bamba! tells the heart-warming story of Sofia (Inês Fernandez), a small-town girl from Los Angeles on her journey to stardom. Her dream of becoming a superstar began when her father, Ricardo (Pasha Kovalev), handed her a guitar. Sofia, inspired by her musical heroes, will discover, with the help of her family and best friend Mateo (Siva Kaneswaran), that while talent makes you a star, fate can make you a legend.
Written by Paul Morrissey, directed by Ray Roderick, and featuring choreography by Graziano Di Prima, Erica Da Silva and Giada Lini, the musical features music from across the Latin genre from traditional folk songs to recent chart-topping hits arranged by musical maestro, Alfonso Casado-Trigo.
La Bamba! is a vibrant new musical fiesta about passion, pride and the realisation that every journey begins with a single step!
